Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Two Princeton astrophysicists receive funding to study merging neutron stars

(Princeton University) The TEAMS consortium (Towards Exascale Astrophysics of Mergers and Supernovae), including Princeton University's Adam Burrows and David Radice, will investigate how stellar explosions create elements. "Merging neutron stars produce the heaviest elements," Burrows said, "but the oxygen we breathe, the iron in our hemoglobin, the calcium in our bones, the fluorine in our toothpaste -- these sorts of things are unambiguously products of supernova explosions: the death of a massive star."
